Membership fees

Despite the name, the club participates in all disciplines of running, fell, cross country and road and welcomes applications from runners of all abilities to join us. If you are not sure if the club is for you, why not come to one of our training sessions or one of our regular pub runs. You will be under no obligation to join, but you will get a feel for the club and a better idea if the club is for you. You can merely turn up to a training session unannounced, but it would be better if you contacted our club secretary first (details on the contacts page) and let him know that you will be coming and he will make sure that whoever is leading the group will look out for you. If you are an absolute beginner to running, you too are most welcome to join us in one of our sessions, but please contact our secretary first and he will make sure that you will have a programme with which you are comfortable.

This is a nice little 7.5 mile race over the tops from Wycoller to Haworth.  Angela Donlan continued her good form to finish 1st FV40 and the race saw the debut of Eve Boothman as a fell runner.  The fourteen Barlickers who turned out, finished as follows:

There was a great atmosphere in the lovely setting of Cuerden Park as everyone set off to compete over what the purists would say was a proper cross country course.  It had everything.  Water, bogs, hills and streams, with some runnable bits in between.  There were lots of Barlick vests on display with nearly as many juniors out as seniors.  Most of our juniors are new to running and new to racing, yet they proved formidable opponents with our U11 boys running out first team.

Our women too are also now looking like formidable opposition , with Sarah Tipler finishing 4th overall and with her two team mates, Jen Hird & Rachel Villers,  also finishing in the top twenty, it was enough to secure them 1st place. Our ladies B team finished 12th out of 32 teams and our women's vet 35 team also secured first place.  

What a challenge for the men to emulate.  Tom Corrigan looked like that he meant business and from the start, he was in the leading bunch of runners. Further down the field, his team mates were battling with each other.  Before the race, Livers moaned about not running on tarmac, but in the race, it didn't look a problem and Jimmy Craig had all on to force him into finishing 3rd Barlicker.  Marc Hartley and Luke Maude were also having a ding dong battle with Marc just edging it at the finish.  The result of all this inter team rivalry was that the others did not stand a chance and we had five finishers in the top twenty which was once more enough to secure first place.  

So, a good day for the club with four first team places.

The dark nights have started and so have the winter pub runs. Plenty of fun, especially when Pete Jackson is in charge of the route choice. This week, it was Widdop and the Pack Horse. It's a cracking little pub, situated on the moors between Lancashire and Yorkshire. It sounds far away but going up Lenches and through Thursden valley, it only takes about 25 minutes to get there from the capital of the North (Barnoldswick). Once we got there, it was time to don the head torches and head out into the unknown. The race route would've been a little long for our social jaunt so Pete had been and reccied a route over the weekend and said those words we all dread to hear him utter- "Don't worry lads, I know the way!". So off we went minus the Gaffer(fat cankle Jock). We hopped over a stile into the first field and Pete got us lost. We scurried about looking for the elusive exit from the first field and eventually stumbled across it. At this point I was dreading the rest of our night time excursion into the unknown but to be fair, it was the only time we went wrong. It had a bit of everything in it, a forest, a reservoir, rock, bog, mud, stone slabs, ups, downs and lots of leaves as Pete pointed out through the forest. With the pub being at the top of the world there was a little sting in the tail with a three quarter mile climb back up to the drinking hole. The run was pleasant and the beer was top notch. Satnav even ordered a black pudding stacker and then had the audacity to ask for a poached egg with it. The chef told him where to go in no uncertain terms much to our amusement. A good night and next week is the more local Punch Bowl in Earby so hoping to see even more people enjoying the unique banter the pub run brings.

The mixed team had an amazing run to finish 1st beating 15 other mixed teams and finishing 44th overall. The V40 team also put in a strong performance to finish 8th team and 53rd overall.
